Whether sin, believing lies, or apathy, our adversary the devil will use any means necessary to gain an advantage over the believer. With timeless Biblical instruction and clear practical steps to take in response, Pastor Jeff Johnson shows us how to know when the spiritual warfare is ramping up its intensity and the weapons God has given to us in response.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.

When it comes to dealing with a difficult boss, there are times when it seems there is no where else to go and very little recourse to follow. The result is to allow frustration and bitterness to take over after a time. Unfortunately, that makes for an increasingly challenging work situation and doesn’t produce the fruit that God is able to bring out of your circumstances. Pastor Jeff Johnson offers a better alternative on today’s Sound Doctrine. If you feel like there is no way out as you look around, consider looking up... in ever increasing measure. God DOES have a plan in how He wants to be glorified in your work environment. With that in mind, let’s go to Ephesians 6 for our study titled, “Employee/Employer Relationships - Part 1” with Pastor Jeff

Just as we need oxygen, food, and water; so too we also have intangible needs as well. In godly homes parents need to provide those essentials that will allow them to grow in the Lord, experience God’s grace, His Word, and be equipped to be the people He has called them to be. As parents receive from the Lord those elements of walking with the Lord, then they will be able to provide them for their children. As we continue in our series of Parent-Child relationships Pastor Jeff Johnson reminds us that God has given us all that we need to grow and know Him, so that His peace and presence will be in our families as we raise our children in His ways.
